Basic Baking Skills with Miss Sue
Four Mondays, 4-6 PM, March 4, 11, 18, & 25, Ages 4 thru 9 year olds, $199 per student
To help children develop basic Baking skills giving them the ability to be successful in the kitchen, they need to be comfortable with measuring, mixing, using the utensils and ingredients at hand. Mathematics, precision, and timing become a focus as much baking shifts more to science and accuracy as well as artistic ability. This four session program will teach them patience and humility in the kitchen. We will inspire an added respect for safety, knife skills, precise measuring, along with the use of kitchen tools and small appliances.
As we work from basic preparation (‘mis en place’) to clean up, the students will practice these skills each week baking and sampling what they prepare. The capstone event for the last class, students will invite one adult to come and enjoy some of what they have learned and created.
Class One – precision measuring, mathematics of recipe conversion, accuracy and timing, reinforcement of safety and utilization of kitchen tools and general dexterity. Prepare and sample several types of cookies.
Class Two – repeat and continue to hone skills learned in class one, learn about the food groups and basic tastes, prepare, bake and taste cupcakes, cake, and frosting.
Class Three – reinforcement of general skills and prep. The focus of this session will be on creating pies and bread.
Class Four – The Grand Finale – Children invite one adult to come and enjoy a sampling of baked goods they learned in this series. We will set a proper table, for our guests to all enjoy the fruits of the children’s baked creations.
